CLEARFIELD – Progress is being made on removing the fuel tanks, according to the Lawrence Township meeting on Tuesday night. The diesel tank is now sufficiently empty. There is still 400 gallons of gasoline left. Supervisor William Lawhead stated that the township would have to dispose of any unused gasoline, and these gallons would best be used.
The township would not completely empty the tanks as there is rusty residue at the bottom of the tanks. Lawhead contributed the debris to the ethanol in the fuels.
Secretary/Treasurer Barbar a Shaffner told the supervisors that the township has begun using fuel cards for diesel.
The township received $12,090 more in liquid fuels funds than expected. These funds cannot be directly applied to removing the fuel tanks. Supervisor Glenn Johnston commented that these extra funds could be possible be reallocated towards removing the tanks.
The township will need to attempt to advertise parts of the zoning ordinance revisions again due to unknown problem lead to said changes not being advertised. This pushes back the approval of the revisions by at least thirty days. The township may schedule a special meeting to approve the revisions depending on when they are advertised.
